Disturbing tone is established well; Judd Glenny and his backstory is intriguing; art team contributes well to the tone

One character who serves as a way of spoonfeeding Judd Glenny's story

Blood and Dust Juddy Genn 01 cov

Horror has been a rare territory for me in comics in recent history. Blood & Dust has been a great re-entry for me into the genre with a lot of promise in its concept.

Creators and Writers Michael R. Martin & Adam J. Orndorf introduce us to a vampire named Judd Glenny living with his granddaughter and great grandchildren who also happen to be of horrific nature and with that information alone you can already tell there’s a lot about this character you want to know more about which is just what this debut issue does but in a more “prologue” kind of manner. You do get an answer on why Judd is here but it’s a bit cryptic to the point that it just sparks more interest. Martin & Orndorf establish this disturbing feel in the opening pages. The characters are twisted except for one normal character who does move this comic forward by asking more about Judd Glenny’s history.

Filipino and comic book artist Roy Allan Martinez translates the writing greatly by amplifying the disturbing feel of this issue with his characters and shadowy indoor scenes. To top all of that off, the colors by Raymund Lee finish off this disturbing comic with his nice execution of moody color choices that contribute a lot to define this horror comic.

Blood & Dust: The Life and Undeath of Judd Glenny #1 definitely shows a ton of promise with the horror, the main character Judd Glenny and mostly with what this debut issue left us with in the last few pages. Martin & Orndorf delivers with the type of horror that isn’t super scary but the type of horror that makes you say “I’d rather not live around this certain vampire’s vicinity” that’s greatly topped off by the handling of Artist Roy Allan Martinez and colorist Raymund Lee. All of this promise is sure enough to make you stick around for the next issue.
